Ice-cream man Grint chills in Ferrari

Harry Potter star Rupert Grint has dumped his ice-cream van in favour of a Ferrari, after deciding it was "a bit creepy" to be driving around handing out lollies to fans.

The red-headed actor, who played Ron Weasley in the hit films, has bought a classic 1980s Ferrari Testarossa.

Appearing on ITV4's Goodwood: The Moving Motor Show, he told host Alan Davies: "It's something I've always wanted. It's a Testarossa, a 1980s one, which actually translates to 'red-headed', so it's perfect. I think there's something a bit creepy about driving round giving ice-creams to children, so I've refrained from that."
